The importance of picking and choosing your battles.
Last Friday I attended the highly-anticipated FounderMade Wellness Summit hosted at Spring Studios in NYC.

From the Founders & CEOs of companies like MindBodyGreen, Wanderlust, and Greatist to the Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Health Magazine, it was quite an explosion of empowering leaders to say the least.
Ah, Valentine’s Day… it’s really just another excuse to treat yourself, amiright? And if you happen to have an S.O…. well, that’s just an added bonus.
